    1. GAL get replicated with AD replication. Check if AD replication working fine.

    2. Check GAL Generating server is able to communicate with the required location.

    3. If GAL not getting updated in Outlook on client end, try running outlook in Online Mode.

  • Is it GAL or OAB? Many users mix thoes two so please help us clarify where does the issue occur, in Outlook running in Cached mode, or in OWA? It would help decide the next step.

    For your reference, GAL information is populated by GC server, so check AD replication would be helpful.
